Prevention Works

Community-Based Prevention Services

DAODAS supports broad-based prevention services provided at the local level through the county alcohol and drug abuse authorities. The county authorities collect and organize data about their respective communities and then plan programs or activities, collaborating with other organizations to address the community’s needs. Community-based prevention services are designed to buffer known risk factors and enhance those factors that have been proven effective in protecting individuals, families, and communities from the identified risks. For more information about these services, contact your county authority.
